Pair Very Peri with a Contrasting Color

While the design community is looking for ways to incorporate Very Peri, Pantone’s 2022 Color of the year, into their home design projects, Gessi offers a faucet finish that works exceptionally well to pair with this bold color.  Virtually opposite on the color wheel – the Gessi Brushed and Polished Brass finishes offer great contrast against a vanity, sink, wall or even a tub in the Very Peri purple color.  From a design perspective, these brass fixtures from Gessi pop against the purple hue creating an interesting contrast that is both modern and dramatic.  Gessi demonstrates the beauty of these finishes on their new Venti20 – a collection that captures the aesthetical spirit of the “Roaring Twenties” and reimagines it for the modern world.  Elegant lines pair with meticulous detailing with fluted bodies, reflective cuts, all combined in a singular silhouette!

Think: Small Space, Big Color

In line with JC Licht’s 2022 design trend, they see bold colors like Pantone’s Color of the Year, “Very Peri,” being used to create drama and interest. When considering implementing strong colors in the home, think “Small Space, Big Color.” Using a bold color such as Very Peri in a powder room or coat closet produces a “jewel box” affect and adds an unexpected surprise to your home design. Don’t stop at paint! Create a feature wall using wallpaper and exciting pieces of hangable decor or artwork. While selecting your wallpaper, try to find patterns that incorporate your paint color to give the space character that is creative while still feeling cohesive.

Designer Pro Tip: If uncertain about choosing an eye-catching but very saturated color, focus on areas of the house that are not often used, like the dining room, powder room or mud room as you will never tire of your choice.

Balance Very Peri with a Softer Color Palette

Very Peri is a youthful, carefree and confident color that brings forth a creative spirit. To use Very Peri in your home interior design, Sarah Jacquelyn Interiors suggests that you balance this intense, vibrant color with a pastel blush or lilac or with accents of a sage green. This is a great option for a living room or family room in particular. Alternatively, go bright and bold with a combination of bright greens to offset the vibrant peri.
